The blinking indicator is telling you that the batteries have been inserted incorrectly. Otherwise, the charger probably no longer works

SOURCE: My 15 min. Duracell charger keeps blinking-won't work...

When the duracell lights blink during charging, AT YOUR OWN RISK, try a reverse charge. Instead charging positive to positive and negative to negative, try positive to negative and negative to positive. I did this for 2 minutes. This solved the problem. After the 2 minutes, I gave the batteries a normal charge. You will have to force the battery and charger contacts to touch.

Only used twice Walmart agrees its a problem but


whoa.....if you bought this two months ago take it back to Walmart and speak to the store manager. This should not have happened. I am quite sure the manager would rather take this back rather than have you file a written complaint with the local better business bureau. Regards, Joe
ps kindly rate my answer as helpful. thank you.

Red light is flashing off and on


Please refer to your charger user manual: but in general, this indicates that the charger has determined that one or more of your rechargeable is faulty (despite the fact that it may still hold a partial charge).
Smart charger can measure the expected voltage and current flow and will prevent any 'faulty' cells to be charged (those 'faulty' rechargeable batteries may actually still be useful and charged on other less intelligent charger). Try charging them individually (if your charger can handle individual battery) or in different pair combination to locate flaw cell.
Hope it helps.
